Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that will cause a no crank condition and it will take some testing to determine what is going on. You could have a bad stater, ignition switch, transmission range sensor, there may be a wiring issue, it may simply be a blown fuse or dead battery.

Is there any noise from the engine compartment when trying to start the engine?
